(2016) the Pacific Team Presents: Twenty Sixteen! (美舰本团队出品:二〇一六!)

Our website came under heavy attack recently, and I am thankful that we were able to get it up in time for me to make one last post before the elections.


In less than twenty-four hours, this historic election will come to a close.


I want to end (for now) by giving a heartfelt thank you to all of you. Yes, you, especially you autists from /pol. Thanks for the laughs. Thank you for dropping by – our site’s died to traffic overload more times in these last few months than I care to count. Thank you for your messages, as I am truly, truly impressed by the size and variety and content behind it all. Thank you for spreading our works around and making a few more people grin. Without all of you we wouldn’t have had this much fun making our pieces, and I think we’ve all became a little better because of it. So thank you. Thank you!

现在,我想对你们所有人致以诚挚的谢意。对,就是你,读者。尤其是特别是从/pol 来的自闭症患者们。感谢你们的笑声(以及你们的梗);感谢你们的到访。鄙站最近几个月因巨大流量而崩溃的次数我数都数不过了;感谢你们的来信,那些内容丰富、五花八门的信真的,真的让我记忆犹新;感谢你们到处张贴我们的作品,让更多的人会心一笑。没有你们,我们的创作过程不会这么开心。而且,我想我们都因此有了些许进步。所以,谢谢你们,谢谢!

You already know where I stand – just take a look at the site. So I won’t be talking any more politics in this post. Before I finish, though, I’ve got one more thing to show before the elections.


We make artbooks. It’s kind of a hobby of ours. Once we’ve gotten everything together, including the election results and maybe a couple more pieces of art, we’ll put everything together and put it online, right here. It goes without saying that the electronic version of 2016 will be released free of charge – just give us some time to compress the thing down from its gigabyte size.


Hey, look. That’s just how we do things. Zero and I believe in doing things the right way, so if you feel like supporting us, keep an eye out for the physical copies if you want, but we do prefer that you know exactly what you’re getting in the tin. If you want to get anything from us, ask to see it first. If I can be proud for a moment – we’ve got the track record to prove it, and we want to be as honest with you as we are with ourselves.


Remember, though, that at the end that this isn’t about us. It’s about this election and it’s about you. Know that each and every one of you played a role in the creation of this book, but more importantly, each one of you is shaping history in your own way. This book, in that sense, is a dedication to that. It’s a dedication to you.


Whatever happens on Tuesday, be assured that we’ll be watching. Of course, we’ll be playing our part too. God Bless America.


Good night, and good luck!
